(The day after Christmas. The former Megaforce Rangers are at Ernie's.)
Gia: You guys aren't going to believe this. Jake: That you just love me for my soccer skills? Gia: Do you want me to give you your present back? Jake: Not really. Troy: What is it? Gia: I got a call from my cousin Brigit yesterday. Emma: She's the one Mal's been dating, right? Gia: Yeah. Well, they aren't dating anymore. Jake: Guess he still has feelings for you, Emma. Gia: You didn't let me finish. They're getting married. Noah: You said they only met back in July. Gia: Yeah. She works at a nursery, and Mal went in there to buy some pots, to replace ones that were broken in the Earthquake on Independence Day. They've been practically inseparable ever since. Troy: So, when are they getting married? Gia: That's the thing. They're getting married next week. New Year's Day. Orion: I don't know much about Earth relationships, or Minutiaeian ones, but that seems like a rather short amount of time. Noah: Hardly enough time to send out many invitations. Noah: Well, all of Mal's family on Earth is already in Gray Lake. His only other family would be on Minutiae. Gia: Brigit said our invitation would be here by Friday. Troy: That's tomorrow. Jake; you think Mal will invite us? Troy: Im sure he will. We've been in his life longer than most of his family.
